Halford Hewitt

After the death of Arthur Croome in 1930 a new scratch medal competition was put in place for the Spring Meeting. It was originally called the Croome Putter but became the O’Brien Trophy in the early 1960s after the untimely death of Robin O’Brien from cancer in his 30s.
Robin was a superb golfer and played for many years in the Halford Hewitt team, right up to just before he died. Recent winners include Bas Gowar – 4 times, Mike Gowar, Harold Deane - past President, twice. Ed Bragg, Chris Rummery, Richard Webb-Eggleshaw, James Wyke, James Harper, John Wakely, Mike Power - past President, Stuart Mackie twice, Freddie Edmunds and Jack Sallis with scores ranging from 70 to 78.
